"The instructions are missing what to do with the first 1/2tsp of salt and 1/4tsp of pepper but I assumed it was to put on the chicken prior to browning and it workes out well for me. Also, was leary about the 2tsp of butter for the dumplings and thought maybe it was 2 Tbsp lile most all sticks of butter measure. I can say it is really 2 tsp like the recipe says and not 2 Tbsp that you would measure on the sticks of butter on the wrapper. This was very yummy and I plan to make it again."- crglrsn

maximusg 3 months agoTurned out GREAT, I switched up the recipe though, used a full can of cambells cream of chicken instead of chicken broth, swtiched the peas for celery, and I used chicken breast instead of theighs, Everything came out splendid.
TrueAngel 4 months agoThumbs up from my picky eaters. They loved it! I just added one more cup of chicken broth.
jlburgart 11 month agoThis was really good! The best dumplings I've made, ever. They were moist and light. I made my own chicken stock which helped with the flavor. Be sure to use plenty of salt. I also doubled the recipe on the dumplings and upped the chicken stock by half. Easy to make too.
Bill3508 1 year agoKind of different for chicken and dumplings but its very good. Dumplings are very light. You could also use this without the dumplings to do a chicken pot pie. Also double up on the pepper.
Ange325 1 year agoVery good and easy to make, the only thing is it needs a little more salt and pepper, but other than that my husband and I love it.

JenahGrace 1 year agoReally good! I agree with most people that more broth is needed to make it a soup rather then a stew but all in all a really great recipe. Dumplings were perfect!

LisaMommy 2 years agoYummy! Made this yesterday. Also added more broth/stock & seasoned the chicken w/poultry seasoning. The whole family liked this & I will definitely make it again!
Marthabc71 2 years agoFabulous recipe - instead of making the dumplings from scratch, used a can of biscuits, was great! But re this recipe, the sauce/gravy was terrific, will definitely make this again!
Foodcritical 2 years agoI really love this easy to make recipe... I've tried soooo many other recipes with no success.... Few things to add though...I wish I hadn't used the parsley. It kind of took away the taste of the actual dumpling... I added more stock as well as a cube of chicken bullion because I love flavor and also a little bit of heavy cream and bakingpowder to but all in all it was delicious
lbryan77 2 years agoVery good meal! I did also add more stock! I will definitely make it again.

crglrsn 3 years agoGreat meal. Next time I'll be putting more stock in.
Kerryn88 3 years agoQuick, healthy, hearty and nice what more could you want? Only I do recommend adding a bit more stock to the pot just to make it more like a soup less like a stew next time I'm going to add a few different veggies just to mix it up a bit, but as is this is a yummy meal and I would recomend it
Nephite03 3 years agoVery good meal. I found that I needed to double the amount of chicken stock in order to keep it more of a soup than a mush, and rather than making 8 dumplings I pinched off marble sized peices of the dumpling batter and made a bunch of smaller ones. All in all a fantastic meal.
Rachelmt323 4 years agoMy family loved this. Doesn't take long at all, very fast for dumplings
